An idyllic setting offering spacious, comfortable accommodation, secluded gardens and your own private pool for boisterous fun and games with your family or relaxation with your latest novel.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 2 weeks here and it feels like we have been away for longer we are so relaxed.
The property is very well appointed and only a short 8 minute walk from the village where there are two restaurants and a cafe.
We did a few of the circular walks around the village and never met another soul - it is totally peaceful.
Mark and Marguerite are very friendly and helpful and recommended some great places to visit.
The grounds are huge and a delight to walk around. The pool is totally secluded and very well kept.
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of June. It is a beautiful farmhouse, full of old charm. Mark and Marguerite are perfect hosts, always available if you need them but at the same time respecting your privacy. The grounds and pool are immaculate and Mark and Marguerite work very hard to keep them that way. Segur Le Chateau, a very pretty village, is only short walk, with a good restaurant and snack bar. There is plenty to do and see in the area, but if you just want to relax and unwind this is the place to do it. Thank you for a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for a lovely review. It is always good to have guests returning again, especially after 10 years. Privacy for guests is very important to us and a lot of unobtrusive effort is put into maintaining the grounds and the recently refurbished farmhouse. Le Grangeau has a lot to offer and when guests leave relaxed and happy, it shows that our property and this wonderful part of France has worked its charm again.

Ein wunderschönes romantisches Landhaus im Correze

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten eine sehr gemütliche Zeit in diesem romantischen französischen Landhaus, eingebettet in einem herrlichen weitläufigen gepflegten Garten mit Schwimmbad. Das Haus ist in tollem Zustand, liebevoll eingerichtet. Man fühlt sich von Anhieb an wohl. In der geräumige Küche mit Blick auf den offenen Kamin werden die kulinarischen Sinne angeregt. Im eigenen Speiszimmer lässt es sich sehr angenehm dinieren. Die Zimmer im 1.Stock und die Bäder sind auch sehr gemütlich so dass die ganze Familie nicht zusammengedrängt ihren Platz findet. Die Besitzer Marc und Marguerite heißen ihre Gäste herzlich willkommen und kümmern sich auch sehr um sie. Gleichzeitig lassen sie einem aber den nötigen Freiraum. Die Umgebung ist wie aus einem Bilderbuch des Mittelalters. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Lovely old farmhouse with stunning gardens.

  • 4 of 5
What a lovely old farmhouse, with the most spectacular gardens which Mark and Marguerite work very hard to maintain. The weather was pretty temperamental with quite a lot of rain which put a damper on things but when we were able to be outside the pool was lovely. Mark and Marguerite were incredibly friendly and really helpful when my dad was unwell going above and beyond! They were also happy to suggest places to go and where to eat. The surrounding countryside was gorgeous and I highly recommend a trip to Gimmel le Cascade to see the waterfalls which are stunning and Brive was a gorgeous town too. St Yrieux was a lovely town too and the market was good too but we found the best seafood at the local Intermarche!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your observations, Charlotte and family. It was a shame that we had some unseasonable rain in June this year but we are always glad to know that our guests have enjoyed the farmhouse and gardens. We like to see our visitors leave looking relaxed. Gimel Les Cascades is one of our favourite spots - three waterfalls next to a beautiful village and spectacular views across a gorge.

New owners but still 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5
I was a little nervous about our Holiday at Le Grangeau. Not least because I'd never stayed in a Gite before but also we were travelling with an 81 year old Great Grandma, my in-laws and our baby daughter! Also just before we arrived we heard that the Gite was under new ownership, would it still live up to it's stellar reviews?
I need not have worried, Mark and Marguerite are seasoned travelers to France and know how it should be done! Wine and bread were waiting for us on our arrival and after a quick tour we were left to it, their presence on site was no way intrusive, there is plenty of garden to go round for everyone!
The gardens are a delight and the house has character and charm, not 5 star luxury but clean and pleasant. The pool is just right and we managed a few swims even in early June.
Segur is wonderful, simply medieval France at it's best! Local restaurants are all good but you get what you pay for and the more expensive La Part des Anges was definitely worth the extra cost, the little cafe by the river was very friendly and the perfect place to sip a drink and relax in the afternoon.
All in all we had a lovely 2 weeks, my only complaint (and it really is a tiny one) as a bit of a keen cook I really could have done with a bigger cooking pot. On the plus side though, the knives provided were really sharp!

Owner's Response: What a great review and our thanks to you all for being such great guests! It was a pleasure to see you all enjoy yourselves so much. Good point about the pot - we have remedied that with a pot of appropriate volume!

Even better on our second visit!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say this is the most wonderful part of the world for being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of real life but close enough to all the amenities you will need. Ian and Sue are the perfect hosts and are helpful to a tee. In our party there were 6 adults spaning from the early 20's to the mid 50's and one 11 yr old, the cottage was perfect for us all! Loads of space and tremendously comfortable! If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in breath taking surroundings then this is your place! 5 star all the way for us!......See you next year guys
